Food is yummy, but service is a bit erratic. The service was very good at first, then the waiter disappeared. Our meal was late. We complained and the manager was a
apologetic and gave us free desserts and a discount on the bill.

This is our second meal AT Point Royal. Very nice environment, great food, terrific server and good wine list. How much more can you ask for. Too bad this is I. Florida and we are in NY.

Expected more from a celebrity chef restaurant . Nothing special about the menu at all .In fact I thought I’d was dull, uninspired and was limited in choices . Although service was good we felt like we were being rushed as the lunch time period was coining yo an end . I will put this restaurant in the one and done category.

The restaurant boasts a celebrity chef, but they were unable to accommodate a vegan meal request.

It’s a pleasant place the offerings were of high quality and well prepared. The set up of the buffet was questionable and confusing. Lots of doubles in containers where there nowhere to place the lids when opened, attached lids would be better . As for the cuisine there could have been more attention to the word “Brunch”, no omelets, crepe, pancake of waffle options , no fruit, sad salad selection, no vegan options really.

The setting was nice and the service was excellent.
The food was good but certainly not great.
I had the grouper which was meh at best.
Wife had Mac and cheese an d she enjoyed it.
Our meatball appetizers and calamari were both very good.
Daughter had hanger steak and it was quite good with the skinny fries and a nice dipping sauce.

In regard to recommending it. I would but letting them know its a bit pricey for the fare.

We were there for Thanksgiving dinner. It was very nice food, not a tone of selections but good. There were four dessert choices and all were very dry.
The service was nice and the presentation was very pretty of the main courses. I did NOT like that I wasn’t informed this is more like a coffee shop with no tablecloths for a holiday. It was much more casual than I expected for a $45 dinner. I will go back, maybe not too often, with less expectations because the food was good. $5.00 was way too expensive for a mini bottle of Coke as well. C’mon. It didn’t even fill the glass.

Restaurant was very good, great menu selection and fresh fish.

The chicken was very poorly done, burnt on the outside and undercooked on the inside. Sent it back and they overcooked the same piece till it was inedible. Left it all but no one seemed to be worried.

When you have a full house the attention is not in detail

The Group was good but boring. The actual fish was good quality and prepared to the right temp. But it was bland. Needed a good sauce to go with it. Cheese pizza was great and Kids mac n' cheese was outstanding!

Our waiter was Paul he’s fun knowledgeable and always makes dinner at point royale a great experience. Earlier in 2019, I reproposed to my wife of 26 years. It was a fantastic! so we came back in November for weekend and sat at the same table in which I proposed and laughed throughout dinner. Point Royal has very special place in our memories and experiences together.

The Manager on Friday night started our experience off with a smile and a warm welcome after a hectic flight - then we were greeted by Paul who is by far one of the best Servers I have had the pleasure of meeting. His personality and services are Top Notch - definitely ask for him when you dine there in the evening.

The food was but not exceptional. The stone fruit wedge was very good. We had the grouper, the snapper and the dark cherry meringue. They were tasty. Our server tried hard but the set was not good. They were out of the wine I ordered so I ordered the wine the server suggested to replace it. They had to send out for a bottle of it. They never brought the sides we ordered. Our server checked on the sides and they were sitting in the window not picked up with our mains. She had them remade but they did not arrive before we finished our main dishes so we canceled them. After all that you would have thought dessert was in the house but it wasn’t. Everyone/establishment has a bad day. We won’t be eating here again.

The Ceasar salad was mediocre, not enough salad dressing, no pepper, had to request more. The pasta was good with green pea stuffing but the poached lobster accompanying it was non existent. Not a good experience overall!

We eat here fairly regularly but I can tell you I’m not going back for a while. Super disappointed in the menu they took off the two items that kept me coming back. I ordered the snapper, it was dry and was plated with some salad. The description was poor so it wasn’t at all what I expected. My husband ordered the salmon, also not very good, seasoning was on the skin that you don’t eat so bland. Our server forgot about us, drinks were not refilled until we were done not to mention he forgot to bring drinks at the beginning. There is a lot of competition in the area, not to mention way better options in the diplomat, we will stick to monki tail and prime for the foreseeable future.
